|ERIC ED382661: Delimiting the Verbal Domain. - ERIC|
A functional analysis was made of the verbal domain as it is defined by the test development process at the Educational Testing Service (ETS). The thesis of the study was that the verbal domain consists of semantic relations that examinees must interpret. Test developers used a system of rules to sample stimulus materials from among infinite possibilities that elicit an interpretive response. Many of these rules were codified and others were in different stages of formation, beginning in the use...

A literature review and two major studies discovered four approaches to job design, each geared toward different sets of outcomes for individual employees and organizations. The motivational approach tries to design jobs to provide the worker with autonomy and the opportunity to make decisions about how or in what order tasks are done. The mechanistic approach is based on the assumption that the work should be broken down into highly specialized jobs, tasks simplified, a minimum of idle time obt...

Curriculum developers must work hard to avoid the "what errors" of curriculum development. They must avoid failing to teach what should be taught and teaching what is no longer relevant and needed. Curriculum "what errors" are likely to occur when teachers design courses so as to teach what they know best, what they were taught, what they enjoy teaching, what they have had experience with, what available textbooks happen to include, what an occupational analysis done elsewhere includes, and what...
